Bollywood actor Jimmy Shergill skipped the Delhi
premiere of his film Rajdhani Express, saying it
"doesn't look nice" of him to attend such an event in the wake of
the recent gangrape here. The 42-year-old actor said after ranting
so much about the issue on social networking sites, this step of
him is in solidarity with the Delhi gangrape victim.
"Being born and brought up in northern India and after speaking
so much about the brutal rape case on the social media, I should
not attend the premiere here. It doesn't look nice. We could not
postpone it because a lot of effort has gone into it." "Me and my
family were supposed to move out of the country during New Year but
we didn't do that. I have been supporting the fight against the
rape case and will do every possible thing in my way to get speedy
justice," Jimmy told PTI.
Rajdhani Express, a socio-political drama, is directed
by Ashok Kohli and also marks the debut of tennis star Leander
Paes, who plays the role of a common man. The film will hit
theatres on Friday.
